Drowning in guilt over his best friend’s death seven years ago, Lord Gabriel Sharpe, the Angel of Death, knows his only hope at redemption is a race against a shocking opponent.

Shrouded in darkness for the past seven years, the infamous racer Lord Gabriel Sharpe is known to accept every challenge to race thrown at him. When his next challenge comes in the form of his late best friend’s sister, Virginia Waverly, Gabe is shocked. Yet she presents just the opportunity Gabe needs–marriage to fulfill his grandmother’s ultimatum and ensure his inheritance. What he didn’t count on was needing her love.

This is the fourth book in the Hellions of Halstead Hall series but it is great as a stand alone as well. Actually, it is the only book of the series that I have read and I was not clueless as to what was going on at all. Sabrina catches you up on the ultimatum that Gabe’s grandmother made that in order to get their inheritance, he and his siblings must get married by the end of the year.

Gabe is nicknamed the Angel of Death for the way he recklessly races which wound up killing his best friend Roger… who just so happens to be Virginia’s late brother. He sets out to marry Virginia to make amends but Virginia wants nothing to do with him other than to race him at the Turnham Green, same track that killed her brother. She wants to prove to him that he isn’t as superior in racing as he thinks he is. Gabriel makes a wager that they will have a trial race first at a safer course of her choosing and if she wins he will race her at Turnham Green but if he wins she will allow him to court her.

“I’ve had seven months to find a wife, sweetheart, and you’re the first woman I’ve even considered. Do you want to know why? You rouse my blood. I have no other way to describe it. I’m not a poet. I’m not good with pretty compliments, and God knows I have little to offer except a possible inheritance. But I promise that at least in the bedchamber, I can make you happy. Perhaps that doesn’t count for much, but people have married for less.”
